Beer from the wineland

The french actually began brewing beer in the days of Julius Caesar, making a beverage that closely resembles the white beers made from wheat and oats. Today, France has a number of excellent breweries and exports several beers to other countries around the world. The thumbnail photomicrograph below provides a link to the only French beer in our collection.
